I will make a list of 20 meals, I will buy the groceries for those 20 meals, but depending on the week is what we will have. So I will plan a month's worth of meals, but plan weekly when we will eat them.
The biggest issue has been that our schedule is nuts, Phyllis works different hours every week, and I know it sounds completely ridiculous (but it's not to me!) that she have a good something to eat before she goes to work. Making crockpot meals on the days she works at 4 is perfect because it is done by the time she can eat, and still hot (I have one of those crockpots that has a timer) when I get home for dinner. One the days when I don't make dinner until I get home, it means not such a great meal for her before she goes to work. Yes, I realize she's almost 19 but I love her and so it's a small thing to work around. And... wouldn't you want someone to do that for you?
So instead of feeling like a failure when I don't 'hit the mark' every day or things don't go as planned, I will just change the way I plan :)
Also going to plan my fruits and veggies better... just joined WW yesterday! What kind of weirdo joins WW 2 weeks before Christmas and her birthday? The kind of weirdo who doesn't want to buy bigger pants!
Phil 2:3-4 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
